Not So Fast Company

Via Core77 comes word that Fast Company magazine’s June 2005 offering is an “all-design” issue. I have to admit, from what I’ve read online I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I mean, any publicity is good publicity… right? But with articles like ” How to Act Like a Designer” and ” …Or Just Look Like One”, is this the right message when the biggest problem in the professional design world is the general perception that Design is superficial? and something you can farm out overseas for free (the cost of design being wrapped up in other, higher-cost program items like tooling)?

I know. Some of the articles address that problem. Let’s just hope the guy who rushes out to buy his black turtleneck and tre’ cool specs gets that far before he starts using those articles for toilet paper.
